Cool resource! Thanks!

I'm just wondering, though, did you decide to roll around in your chain? Chain marks are cool and all...

Jessie--I didn't "try" to roll around in my chain but ended up getting greasy anyway. Some people carry a rag with them to wipe off but I guess I'm a minimalist. The best was when my chain fell off and I had to wrestle with it to get it back on. I was so greasy that I did roll around in someone's lawn a bit to try and rub the grease off before going home. That must have been an interesting sight.

Rachel- great site! Your comment above about the rag reminds me of a time my chain came off in a group ride and someone stopped and gave me some restaurant type wipes to use. Worked so well I keep a couple in the bag.

Nice job. I think cyclists (and triathletes) need to know how to change a flat. If I dare say you might not be a novice anymore.
